If you want to hear a bored, off-brand Ron Swanson narrate generic dialogue about the afterlife, over VIDEO GAMES SLOWEST WALK CYCLE, then definitely check out Coma:Mortuary. If you're looking for a game where literally anything happens, maybe look elsewhere.

Oh, and if you do decide to check it out, stick around for the most comedically misplaced death metal music, while you walk slower than someone can crawl.

Atmospheric but reminds me of Doorways, which is a much better game.

Scares are minimal.

Sounds are terrible. Resoundingly awful.

Story is hard to follow.

4/10

The store page tells you that this is "the introduction part of a trilogy"

...and all you get is really an introduction. Until the rest of the trilogy is released it is just not worth picking up.

The game is alright, a bit short in my opinion and quite a lot of movie watching, slow walking speed but quite enjoyable. if the other two parts come out maybe play them all in one go as you're looking at about an hour ish of gamplay for this.

not bad, not brilliant.

6-7/10

Worth the $1 I payed for it. It is a bit short and thats saying something because I don't rush. I take time to look at every crany and it could use more scare. The story is amusing enough but needs more atmosphere and better graphics. I would not recommend this for more than $5 though. It is about $0-$5 worth so about $2.50. There are other free games simular to this that offer more such as SCP Containment Breach.

It's evident that a couple of people inspired by the Penumbra series wanted to take a shot at making a slow paced mystical exploration horror game with focus on eery atmosphere rather than combat and jump scares. With this first part, which is supposed to act like an intro of sorts, they brought me from sceptical (I bought it on a sale so I paid almost nothing at all - so I didn't expect anything really), to underwhelmed, to a bit intrigued, back down to underwhelmed and landed on sceptical.

If they put in more effort on the coming episodes, especially when it comes to character models and the AI, then I think it will be at least worth a purchase. As this episode stands, I would not recommend it to the general public - but I _would_ recommend it to horror lovers and people with a genuine interest of games of this type. The atmosphere is absolutely nailed at some parts, while it's completely ruined at others.

If I were to give it one of those oneliner judgements, I'd say "barely passable". If it's on sale again then yes, pick it up. You might enjoy it!

I don't want to spam links or anything, but I think this video I made will do a good job of showing why I do not recommend this game and why I was furious that I purchased it.

Ok went into this game with lots of hope that it would be a very atmospheric horror game and to some degree it is,but and its a "BIG BUT" this game is very short as a matter of fact PAINFULLY SO.Now let me say this that the game does do a good job with atmosphere and i can see where the developers are going to take the story and it looks like it will be really good but only when all three acts are out and can be played one after the other as my total play time will tell you,1.5 hours is neither here nor there and is very short even for a seperate episode.
Now i get to the pricing and at £7.99 its way overpriced for the ammount of game (more like an interactive story to be honest) that you will get,so therefore at the moment is overpriced (in my opinion-no replay value as once you have seen it all thats it).
Ok lets gets to the brass tacs so to speak,the graphics are nice and look really good (your torch offering the only source of light down in the caves and cattacombs that the game is set in),the gameplay is very slow and methodic and to be honest i think i spent upwards of between 20-30 minutes walking places (the game has a very slow walk function,whether intended or not it actually bumps up the playtime).I wont spoil it to much for those that are going to play but there are some nerve changling scenes and these are of the chase variety (no guns or weapons-so it does share that in common with AMNESIA but little all else).There is no true freedom in game and at times you just feel like you are along for the ride.The sound in game is top notch with some of the noises actually getting to you (screams and other noises are all quite nerve shredding at times).
Interaction in world is quite simple and only occurs to advance the story and at times you will wonder where to go but a little trial and error soon sorts this out in time.
So on the one hand i would like to reccommend it but with hand on heart cant as whats there is good but really doesnt warrant such a high price tag for what is actually a shorter experience than most movies,sad as like i have said i can see where they want to go its just whether enough people will buy such a short game to help them get the following episodes out so that we can finish the story and see what actually does and is going on.

(JUST TO ADD-SINCE PRICE DROP)

The game has since dropped to nearly half price so it is now better value for money (but all the above still applies).
This is not a very good sign though as people have paid the higher asking price and it hasent even been out for more than 8 days (not a very good sign of either the product or the developers faith in it)
Lets hope that this doesent become the norm as to be honest this reveiwer will just wait for his games instead of forking out money for a game to just drop less than 9 days later.
(all games drop eventually but not this quickly and lets just hope that the next episodes remain free for the people who bought this game early and that it remains so for everyone else as well)

This game reminds me of a place i remember as a child called Fun Zone. An overpriced indoor playground Where any possible fun was ruined by the angry teenage attendants constantly yelling "NO RUNNING!!!!". The movement speed is painfully slow. Add a run function, and the beautifull graphics would be worth experiencing. but until then i can't come close to recomending.

Personal Rating: "Grab it during a sale"
Traditional Rating: 6/10
Genre: Indie Adventure

Coma: Mortuary (Episode 1) is an indie adventure game from NAGA Entertainment Studios located within the Russian Federation that takes some of its cues from Dante's Divine Comedy. The game places you in the shoes of a depressed and suicidal man who mourning the loss of his girlfriend tries to take his own life at the very same place his lover died by dosing up on copious amount of alcohol and then careening his car off the edge of a cliff. Waking up in the realm of the dead the man begins his search for his lost love.

This first episode of a planned trilogy can at times be incredibly obtuse leaving most of its interpretation open to the gamer. ♥♥♥-bits of information are slowly relayed through the main protagonist short but sparse soliloquies but more often that not they open up more questions than provide answers. The unconsciousness state the man finds himself in (the accident does not actually result in his death but in him entering into a coma) could either be viewed as a state of purgatory or "Purgatorio" by some as there is repeated reference and imagery to religious cleansing and purification or his own personal "Inferno" due to the nature of some of the more oppressive and grim environments and encounters along the way. I am hoping the other two planned releases will expand a bit more on this so that each theme is given more clarity.

Coma: Mortuary is a very short gaming experience with minimal environmental interaction required from the gamer bar the pulling of a lever here and there. Most gamers should get through this episode in roughly an hour and I can't imagine the game appealing to that many gamers who have been brought up on action frag-fests as it's an incredibly slow and meditative piece that is more Dear Esther than Amnesia - The Dark Descent. This is a thinking persons game that should provoke all types of questions around its central themes and that is exactly what Coma: Mortuary does even though as it closes many of those questions remain unanswered - something I am hoping the other two titles are going to eventually tie-up.

The game uses the Unreal Engine and can be strikingly beautiful and atmospheric at times and I found for the most part that the joy of the title lay in discovering its unique environments. Sounds are well implemented and not overbearing except for the occasional out of place rock tune that somehow breaks the immersion. One thing for sure is that Coma: Mortuary has piqued my interest and now I am definitely keen to see how this story of death and redemption is going to play its self out. Only time will tell!

The game is still not worth the money they lowered it to, the only good thing about this was the voice actor. You move so SLOW during the entire game but one part and yet the game still was VERY SHORT. I honestly would not recommend this game to anyone. I was highly disappointed.

Save yourself some money and buy another game.

Not worth the money if you ask me, you walk around, a narrarator (the character you play, I think) speaks confusing dialogue about ghosts, angels and demons. Total game time about an hr. There were only two scary moments within the game and the rest was atmospheric. The storyline wasn't even clear. There was no distinct beginning, middle or end. If you want a scary horror game, then stick with Amnesia the Dark Descent or any of the FEAR games. Just a waste of your time and money.

So I watched the video and thought "Hey, this looks kinda neat, and it's less than a euro, this seems like it'll be a nice experience."

Boy was I wrong, I've yet to finish it, but if it turns out that the scene in the trailer isn't even in the game, I'm gonna have to type some angry letters.

The game is plain boring, it's a little bit unsettling at first, for maybe 1 minute, untill you realize that the narrator is just throwing random words at you about demons, angels and "Oohhh I'm so poetic" bullhonkey.

It almost got eerie at one part, when the music stopped, but it was just preparing to loop.

I've always hated how in Amnesia when you press shift, you run.
This game got it right, and made it so you walk EEEVEEN slower by holding shift, so when you walk the wrong way or have to backtrack, you can't do so quickly.
I am NOT being serious.

The "cinematics" are horrible too, I don't even want to call them cinematics, because it's like they recorded themselves playing their own game with fraps and slapped it in the game.
Infact I bet that's what they did, because whoevers computer it was, must've had a hard time, judging by the jitteryness.

Just like Amnesia, the game takes control of your view once in a while, expect Amnesia allowed you to still look away, and the camera was a lot smoother.
In this game, the camera dashes to a random location in which I assume a noise came from.

The only reason I got a bit scared was because the camera went "WHOSH!" on me, I would've been more afraid had I just heard the noise, leaving me to wonder "What the balloney was that?"

The game effects are also bad, either there is too much blur, or there isn't enough.
There is also a line going up and down my screen when playing this, like when you rewind a VHS tape.



I'm sorry, but this game is not good, is not.
No.

I have some very harsh words to say about this game, but in order of being polite, I'll just say..
Don't bother, even if it's cheap.

I made the mistake by only looking at the price tag, had I only read some of the reviews.

It also scares me to know that this is episode 1.
